    KYLE, Texas (AP) -- A central Texas man is recovering from a bee attack that left him with more than 1,200 stings and his body still bruised two weeks later. Lamar LaCaze of Kyle says he thought he was going to die during the Aug. 31 attack as he was mowing a field.The 65-year-old barber managed to get off a tractor and used his cell phone to call his son for help. Trey LaCaze told the San Marcos Daily Record that when he arrived his father "looked like a bee hive on his head." Lamar LaCaze spent a week hospitalized. Emergency room personnel pulled more than 1,200 stingers from his body.Bees had gotten into his ears, nose and mouth. Relatives believe the bees had been living in an old water heater in the field.

    Ouch. That's what happens when you try to punch every bee in the face.

    I wonder if they were the Africanized honey bees that were all the rage a couple years ago.

    I'm not convinced those actually exist.  No more than the killer kitchen sponges and dangerous end of the world farm animal viruses...

    I don't believe raccoons exist either... I think some crazy bastard is just painting large cats.

    hahaha.  Reminds me of the albino Raccoon I saw one time.  It was with a nice normal colored family with normal colored kids, but it was honestly white like a ghost.  Kind of scary.
